Queen Anne's Men


Queen Anne's Men re-licensed -- April 15, 1609

Queen Anne's Men -- or, simply, The Queen's Men, came into being when James I was crowned in 1603. Its patron was Anne of Denmark, queen consort to James. The company was formed out of the personnel of two previous companies, Oxford's Men and Worcester's Men. [see F. E. Halliday, A Shakespeare Companion 1564–1964 pp. 535-6] Near the end of the reign of Elizabeth, the short-lived duopoly of the Lord Chamberlain's Men and the Admiral's Men was supplemented by a license (March 31, 1602) for Oxford's Men combined with Worcester's Men to play the Boars Head theater. Later that year they started playing at the Rose as well. The remnants of this combined troupe became the Jacobean-era Queen's Men. On April 15, 1609, the company was formally licensed. - RSB

1609, April 15.
Licence for Queen Anne's players (P. R. 7 Jac. 7, pt. 39).
also found in T. E. Tomlins, the Shakespeare Society's Papers, iv (1849)

  1. I think that this Queen was the most important Queen in the Great Britain history, so I have not known a lot the royal family of this country.
    I would like to live in a place with palaces and Kings.

  4. LeBron James opting out of the final Cheap Nike Free Run two years of the deal he signed in 2010 with the Miami Heat to explore his free agent options is the decision many of us expected. From all indications, it’s the only reasonable decision he could have made, given the circumstances.
    Never mind the craziness his choice will usher in Cheap Nike Air Max over the course of the next few weeks.

    We’re still waiting on the decisions of Nike Air Max 1 the other two members of the Heat’s Big 3, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, who are expected to follow the lead of James and opt out of their deals before the June 30 deadline and Air Max 2014 become free agents July 1.
    That would place them in a superstar class that also includes Carmelo Anthony, who informed the New York Knicks that he was opting out of the final year of his deal Monday. The fun (and madness) begins with the Nike Blazers For Sale speculation about what these guys will do in the next phase of their respective careers.
